Fig. 1

A 21-year-old female patient with congenital kyphoscoliosis had a scoliosis of 136° and a kyphosis of 85°. Major coronal curve decreased to 100° at side bending radiograph, and kyphosis to 75° at supine radiograph. After 3-week traction, scoliosis was corrected to 75°, and kyphosis to 56°. Postoperative standing radiograph demonstrated scoliosis was corrected to 60°, and kyphosis to 40°
